NAMI Schenectady lunch meeting May 14, 2012

Hear ye! hear ye!

We meet next at noon on Monday, May 14 at the Schenectady YMCA in Center City for lunch with Lou Magliocca, director of the Y. Park in one of the city lots behind the building (Franklin Street--parking is free), enter back door and ask receptionist for the teen community room downstairs. We're having a catered lunch of pizza and salad from Isopo's Pizza on Erie Blvd. Lou will tell us about the miraculous changeover of the downtown YMCA and give us a tour of the building with its busy gym and fleet of exercise machines, upstairs classrooms and far flung offices filled with other tenants. He'll try to sign you up as a member also. We have other important business to discuss--our advocacy agenda includes the need to call the governor to support improvements in Kendra's Law now close to a floor vote in the Legislature (May 10). We'll bring up the need for a peer recovery center here, need for special police training to stop the violence against people with mental illness, and need for more housing and services. Learn about future plans for meetings and events coming up. (Roy Neville, 377-2619)
